    Our discovery club events are inspiring evenings, where our philanthropic donors meet our scientists to learn more about our discoveries.

Cancer's last note

We have teamed up with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to create an ‘unfinished symphony’ for cancer research – to raise funds to complete a revolutionary new research building. Our new Centre for Cancer Drug Discovery will be one of the world’s most important buildings, discovering treatments that aim to turn cancer into a disease that can be controlled long term and effectively cured.
